Event briefing pack
- A one day experience on the famous Jurassic coast
The Jurassic Coast Ultra starts at Abbotsbury and follows the South West Coast path all the way to Lulworth Cove.
Wild and rugged. Steep climbs and descents that test your concentration as well as your strength. The course follows the South West Coast path which is marked by the Acorn sign. It's a very obvious well-worn route. The emphasis is on self-navigation. In most cases, it's as easy as keeping the sea on your right and the land on your left.
These are located approximately every 20KM. They will offer food, water, coke and PH
A minimum speed of 5km per hour needs to be maintained. Checkpoint cut off times will be published in the event information pack. 13 hours in total to compete circa 65km (40 miles).
- Any late runners will be retired from the event.
- The route is covered by our medical support. Please use the supplied phone numbers on your actions on sheet or report at a checkpoint.
On completion of the event briefing held at the HQ you will be transported to the start by minibus. This takes approx 40 mins.
